I'd just like to say that I'm not sure why everyone is so angry with each other. John and myself had a telephone converstation. A comment about It was picked up on one of the newgroups. I stated there and then that I didn't feel it to be relevant. As far as I am concered that is the end of the story. What was disgussed is between myself and John is just that; between John and myself.

However, I did NOT call John to ask about subscription numbers. That is completely fabricated and are the kind of comments that can land people in trouble. Nor did I call to ask about any other sensitive information. As is stated in the in the article, it was a 'courtesy call', nothing more nothing less. I wanted to be upfront with JC so that he had heard it from me, not through the grape vine where things can get twisted, that I would be starting a new magazine. Anyone who interprets that as a way to get sensitive information out of another is, to be frank, rather misguided and I would object to such things being said about myself or John regarding that conversation.

Aside from this, I think that people should just in general be more positive. I am doing what I'm doing for my own reasons, of which the most important is enjoyment. I dare say that JC is doing the same. I wish people would give up arguing and work together. There is just no need for the constant bitching- because that is what it is. We all have a fanasitc opportunity here, (to continue the market and make it grow so that others have the benefit of it too). For goodness sake get it together! :-D Louie Smith
